TMI - Too Much InfoWe knew the brain was an amazing created gift, but it just keeps getting better - it makes your brain hurt to think about it.
This article , from the Daily Mail, is about how much more powerful it is than was previously thought.
"The human brain can store 10 TIMES as many memories as previously thought, says study."
Oh, there's a surprise!?! God was smarter than we thought?
Our brains are so complicated as they take electrical impulses, combine them with our sight, hearing, speaking, muscle movement and on and on and on, and then translate that information into thoughts.?. This is very heady stuff - too far above my pay grade.
From the Daily Mail article,
|synapses in brain contain at least 10x the amount of info |
than originally thought
- On average, one synapse can hold about 4.7 bits of information.
- This means that the human brain has a capacity of one petabyte, or 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes.
- One petabyte is about the same as about 20 million four-drawer filing cabinets filled with text or about the same as 13.3 years of HD-TV video.
- 20 petabytes is around the same amount of data that is processed by Google each day.
- Meanwhile 50 petabytes can hold the entire written works of humankind, from the beginning of recorded history, in all languages
- And the kicker - there are possibly well over 100 trillion synapses in the human brain (some estimate 1000 trillion).
It is mathematically impossible to crunch the numbers to figure out how much time is required for the kind of information that is cited above to come together by chance to move from the science fiction of a primordial soup to the human brain, let alone work with all of the other systems of our body.
See, I told you, your brain will hurt.
However, what us normal people really need is the gift from God to trust that God will provide all I need for my life and my many daily vocations. He gives the thoughts words and deeds through creation to provide for us.
When we fail in our callings or vocations, our daily jobs, we confess that we have sinned against this eternal creator. Still, the creator gives to us His only Son, who had a brain - who took the place of our brain, to be the perfect brain for our sinful brains. Christ has even saved our brains and endured the suffering our brains have produced.
So when things get disconnected in our brains from infirmities like depression or schizophrenia; from pain and cancer; from Alzheimers and our spouses and children, Christ has endured that suffering for you as well.
Just as in the beginning, is now, and in the end, Christ brings to us His new creation and perfection, now by faith, at our end the new heaven and earth. Creation is new in Christ and will come to full paradise when our synopses click their last earthly charge.
So, I guess we could say that, Christ "brained me" for my sin? Ok, too silly.
